MyrtleBeachOnline.com - Sorry ladies. He's taken. Chad McCumbee married his high school sweetheart, Stephie Pate, on Nov. 24, 2007, at the Holden Beach (N.C.) Chapel. The two met at West Brunswick High School. Chad graduated in 2002 and Stephie in 2003. And it seems marriage hasn't changed Chad at all.
"We've been together so long that it hasn't," he says. "We had a six-year relationship before we got married." The couple resides in Harrisburg, N.C. And how soon will it be before we see a Chad Jr. in the picture? "Eventually that's something we want to get to," he says. "I just can't predict it, especially with the lifestyle I have now."
So what would happen if another driver's wife or girlfriend came to Chad's pitbox to complain about an on-track incident - see girlfriend of Greg Biffle vs. Kurt Busch in 2006 at Texas Motor Speedway. "I think she would be more than ready," he says. "She is a lot more outgoing than I am. "She will speak her mind before I ever will."
